Landscape Teapot with Molded Floral Relief (YFM051314)
Ca. 1725-35, early 18th century
Yongzheng Period, Qing Dynasty
Porcelain with overglaze famille rose / noire enamels
Teapot - w: 15.2 cm, h: 9.6 cm, Saucer- w: 15.4 cm, l: 15.7 cm
Basically perfect: very slight fritting to lid, saucer rim, and teapot bottom
From a Maine estate
This covered teapot and saucer stand is in extraordinary condition, and is quite rare due to its complexity of workmanship. All three parts--lid, teapot, and saucer stand--fit together perfectly and were originally made as a set. The gorgeous famille noire floral grounds are paired with airy landscape scenes, while the raised floral decorations add extra texture.
An identical lidded teapot and stand was sold in 2007 by Christie's New York, as a part of the Hodroff Collection of Chinese export porcelain (sale 1794, lot 191).
A matched teapot and saucer is also available for sale this week; please check out my other lots. This listing is for one teapot and one saucer stand.

About Ascot Court Antiques
We are trusted sellers of authentic antique Chinese ceramics. Check out our five star reviews!
Ascot Court Antiques is a family-run gallery based in Moraga, California. We specialize in authentic antique Chinese ceramics. Our clients include local northern Californian collectors and other enthusiasts from the greater international Chinese ceramics community.
The trade and diaspora of Chinese works of art has been truly extraordinary in both temporal and geographical scope. In this sense, we hope to further a long tradition of connoisseurship and intercultural dialogue by safekeeping pieces of aesthetic and historical value. However, we do not believe that collecting is a socioeconomically elite affair: our stock will always mix high-end and rare pieces with affordable but lovely minyao and export wares.
We take pride in our serious devotion to scholarship and research, and are pleased to offer authenticity guarantees to everything in our catalogue.
